nononono i could do that i think
but i mean on breaking the law and songs that have triple hold downs and up
"Hey u wanna go?" "....to mcdonalds?" "sure but ur paying this time"
#10
Breakin the Law was my first song that i learned all of the way thru. i also learned the beginning of Taking Care of Business, taught me more powerchords i suppose
#12
yeah, learn the american idiot album, all the songs are fairly easy and will help you with powerchords without being overly challenging, it was the first album i could play completely through at about 2-3 months

That is quite possibly one of the best ideas someone has told me yet. Crackattack ur pretty smart.
#13
havent tried breakin the law yet but i think the next easiest thing i learned is stairway exept i cant do the solo also free bird is a good thing to practice the glass slide if u wanna use those but i only know like 3 songs with a glass slide
#14
ok well i got my guitar abt a month ago or so
im gonna try wake me up and i guess that blink 182 song
wut i really wish i could do is play sum megadeth
"Hey u wanna go?" "....to mcdonalds?" "sure but ur paying this time"
#15
Hey, I'm from Texas, too.
What area are you in?

And I'd actually suggest something more difficult, along with some simpler things.
Try to learn something along the lines of... say....Seek and Destroy by Metallica (minus the solos) while you learn other things, like Seven Nation Army by the White Stripes and like previously stated, something by Nirvana.

And on those triple notes you were talking about, I believe you're referring to chords.
What kind of guitar do you have?

haha nice
im going to stick wit one song for rite now so i have to narrow it down until i find a song i can play witout tabs
"Hey u wanna go?" "....to mcdonalds?" "sure but ur paying this time"
#17
yea chords i just forgot wut they were called at the time lol
i live in the dfw area
and i play a fender squier strat
"Hey u wanna go?" "....to mcdonalds?" "sure but ur paying this time"
#18
Then definitely go for something simple. The verses and chorus for Seven Nation Army are good and easy for beginners, and so is Dammit by Blink-182.
Look those up, and see how you feel.

I live in DFW, too, Mansfield.

anything by dream theater.

Don't kill the boy. Whatever you do DO NOT listen to the solo starting at 3:50 in stream of consciousness by Dream Theater. Your face will implode.

May I suggest learning some easy Red Hot Chili Peppers songs? A great project song for a newbie is Dani California, there are a lot of things in that song that are not too hard, but will require work to get right. Also, once you get through learning all of it, you will have gained many new skills.
#20
The Chili Peppers my be a bit much... especially funkier stuff like Dani California.
Californication, maybe?

misery i live in a smallish getting bigger town called frisco
haha trust me ive heard that song before
i want to play cant stop by rhcp i love that song
"Hey u wanna go?" "....to mcdonalds?" "sure but ur paying this time"
#22
Can't Stop isn't too bad. The rhythm is a little hard to get, but once you have it, it's alot of fun to play. Give it a try.
Nothing will help more than learning a song you love. It gives drive and motivation to expand your skills to play other, more complicated songs you enjoy.
